Dubai has been described as being at the cornerstone of Europe, Asia and Africa with 90% of countries located within 8 hours travel time. Home to over 2 million people spanning 200 nationalities, Dubai has established itself as a truly international city and is seeking to solidify its position with the growth of initiatives and developments to enhance the design and cultural scene.

Dubai Design District, known as D3, is a specifically designation Free Zone that aims to foster opportunities in luxury, design, retail and hospitality. A mixed-use development that includes creative office space, showrooms, a conference centre as well as retail, residential, hotel developments, it is reflective of the growing interest by UAE nationals and expatriates to not just consume fashion, design, and luxury goods and services, but also in the development of their own design and creative skills.
